A truly unique gift for the most wonderful day.
The carved edge is lower than the centre, and isn't damaged when bread is cut.
Wheat decoration at the sides is the default option, is free of charge and is used to make up the space left after the words and numbers have been carved. Any punctuation is also free of charge.
I can put diamond separators, flowers, horseshoes, thistles etc on the edge instead of wheat, but bear in mind that long thin designs work best. It is also free of charge. If you mention this in "Note to the Woodcarver" during checkout I will try to come up with a design that looks good and is pleasing to the eye.
- Thomas & Lynsey
With a single wheat ear either side.
- A continuous inscription
Sometimes longer inscriptions are best continuous.To order just omit the / in the order box.The max no of characters is about 35.If there is space I can decorate with wheat or a small diamond.
- Just a top line inscription.
If there is a lot of space left I will decorate it with wheat, but could put something else if you want. Just specify in "note to Woodcarver" on checkout.

Long thin decorations work best. The couple are both Scottish so I was asked to decorate with thistles.
